When you expect things to happen, you don't work for them. You don't earn them. Expectations have a way of unraveling themselves. Last night was absolutely necessary for this team (and it's fans) to come down to earth. It may take a while still to get back in touch with all the things that create a successful team. It may even take a shakeup to drive home the point. But we all felt it. I can't imagine the players and coaches didn't feel it too. The bubble burst. This team is not better than any other until they have proven it on the ice.

The wing dings have haphazard goaltending at this point and they're #2 in the west with 50 points. They've added Hossa but that team is expected to compete for the cup every year (and for the most part they do).
